How to Wash your hair in a sew in

HEY YALL!! I am so hyped right now! I posted the "how to moisturize and oil your hair in a sew in"Check it out . This technique has always worked for me. Here is a quick overview:

  • Wash human hair with a two in one shampoo/conditioner if possible.
  • Seperate into two half to wash weave and avoid tangling the hair, gently work shampoo/conditoner from shaft to end of hair.
  • Rinse Thoroughly.
  • To wash regular hair(braids) Dilute a dime size amount of shampoo/conditioner in a cup and pour over braids (repeat for every section).
  • Rinse hair thoroughly, rub braids to assure hair is rinsed properly.

Once done washing follow the "How to Maintain your hair in a sew in" post below.

FYI: You can rub castor oil on your scalp to promote hair thickness from the root. This is also explained in the video linked above.

Any questions feel free to hit me up:-) Xo Vonni

Sew-In Maintenance

Hey yall!
I am still adapting to this blogging thing..
But I am so loving this sew in.. it is saving me so much time .
As promised I will have a vid up soon on youtube on how to moisturize your hair underneath a sew in and how to properly care for your hair once you take it out ..etc. In the mean time if ya are rockin a sew n like my self.

Make sure to :
1. Spray/rub scurl or any other moisturizer on your braids!!
2. Then go over briads again with oil ( I use a lil squirt bottle to make it easier)
3. Wash every 2-3 weeks to get rid of build up ( I dilute the shampoo with water in a cup etc)

If you you are taking out a sew in ALWAYS.ALWAYS.. DETANGLE AND COMB OUT ALL SHEADED HAIR BEFORE YOU APPLY WATER OR WASH YOUR HAIR. or else ya hair will be a matted mess! I can't stress that enough.. I know I experience it!

To avoid this:
1. Part into sections and apply a conditioner and detangle
2.Let conditioner sit on hair for about 2 hrs or so
3. Wash hair in shower to avoid hassel / Straight try not to rub or tanlge the hair too much
4. Be sure to deep condition!! Your hair needs lots of TLC after being hidden for so long!
